Pet Rules - Prairie State Park

For temporary closures related to weather, stewardship activities and maintenance, click here to visit our Park and Site Status Map.

Due to the unique and rare diversity of life preserved at Prairie State Park, pets are not allowed on park trails. A bison herd freely grazes the park, and this regulation protects both you and your pet. You are welcome to bring your pet to the park’s campground and picnic area, but you must follow Missouri State Parks' pet rules, available here. This applies to all types of pets except service animals assisting people with disabilities.
